This is my first real post...I've been admiring everyones threads and am amazed at all the talented people on here!

I redid my stepdaughters room, we just bought our house in May, so it was a very blank start, all the walls were white, the closet was a ugly off white with gold trim.  I still have to redo her ceiling fan, I will be spraying the gold black and might do something fun with the fan blades, but not sure yet.

She loves Tim Burton, so we did a Nightmare Before Christmas room.  I love looking for things for her room, I would have loved a room like this when I was younger  Cheesy

View from the door:



From another angle:



Her bed area:



Her closet (cork board tiles and the puple background is bat scrapbook paper) (the other closet door is being used for random pictures that she will use to cover the black)



Bat pillow I made (I got a crapton of halloween fabric cheap after halloween last year and plan to do the same this year too Smiley )



Jacks head I painted onto a regular paper lantern:



Hope you enjoyed Smiley

I did do the footboard, I painted all her furniture Smiley  It was a pain too, I used the paint from her walls, it was a tedious job, but I like the outcome.  The bed is part of a loft bed that she and my other daughter used to share, I figured have fun with the furniture and paint it since once she's done with this room, we'll be upgrading to new furniture anyways.  The nightstand and dresser were craigslist/Goodwill finds, I thought they were fun and different looking. 

I will for sure post the fan once I figure out what to do with it Smiley

im still living at home with my dad and step mom.We just got out house this year in june as well. And all i can say is i wish they were as open to letting me decorate my room like you are. The people that owned the house previous to us seemed to have gotten a sale of hunter green and beigh everything. i love the cork board part Smiley very neat way to use up space.

I used this room as inspiration for my daughter's Nightmare before Christmas nursery. We did the walls similarly, except did a light purple on top and more of a muted black on the bottom. We're still working on some of the other decorations for her room, but once it's done i'll post pictures. Thank you for posting this!
